With everyone gossiping about Mark and Roxy's secret fling, it looks like the embarassed copper is gonna end things with Roxy on Neighbours

It's the morning after the night before for Roxy Willis (played by Zima Anderson) on Neighbours (opens in new tab). Not only does she have the hangover from hell but she'll also afraid she has ruined things with Mark Brennan (Scott McGregor).

Mark has been wanting to keep their secret fling on the downlow. So what did Roxy do? She very publicly snogged the policeman during Sheila Canning's (Colette Mann) surprise birthday party at Number 22. Whoops!

As word gets round that Mark and Roxy have been hooking-up, Mark feels rather embarassed by all the attention. So he takes his frustrations out on poor Roxy and makes it clear it's ALL OVER between them.
